So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
Notes: Should I really upload the Backyard kids' short versions of their tunes? They're generally only used in Baseball '03 & Soccer '04 when at bat/scoring a goal.

The Backyard kids once again return to play games of hockey, in the eighth Backyard/Junior Sports game if you count the games which included pro players from the various sports leagues. You may also have noticed that this is the first Humongous game to not use the SCUMM engine, it instead runs on Infogrames' (later renamed Atari after buying the latter company) Yaga engine.

Unused Music

The Backyard kids' short leitmotifs are never used here, but Backyard Hockey for some reason contains the Backyard Baseball pros' themes in music.he... At least you can now listen to them here as well.

Unused Subtitles

Hidden inside the data.he zip file (they are really renamed .7z files) under the nine XML files for dialogue are subtitles meant for the various chatter in-game, but there is no (known possible) way to enable them.

Unused Sound Test?

Hmmm...
To do:
Try to make the menu accessible, so far I only crash when trying to access it by renaming the original "sound.xml" and then the "talkie_viewer.xml" to what was "sound.xml"

In addition, there seems to be a "talkie viewer" hidden inside the menus.he file and graphics meant for it.

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!-- talkie_viewer.xml -->
